Patrick Sowerby

Bachelor of Advanced Business
Stavros Niarchos Foundation Scholar

Patrick is studying Advanced Business with a major in International Business and Finance, and is a resident at Emmanuel College. He understands the power of business in driving change, creating employment and turning ideas into reality, and hopes his university and Liveris Academy experiences will help guide his career after graduating. 

Patrick served as school Vice-Captain at Somerset College on the Gold Coast and graduated with an ATAR of 98.30. He has excelled at Rugby Union - in 2022 he was awarded a UQ Sports Achievement Scholarship and was heavily involved in the Elite Athlete Program. Patrick hopes to play professional rugby union and is a very dedicated member of the UQ Rugby Club. 

Patrick has been fortunate to participate in adventures in the Arctic Circle, South Africa, Thailand, Far North Queensland and New York, and has seen first hand the impact of a small number of individuals on big problems including homelessness, poverty and Indigenous health and education. 

As a leader, Patrick believes in giving first - the more effort he puts in to participate meaningfully, the more impact he can have on those around him. This extends to his charitable interests, sporting teams, residential college and University. As a friend, Patrick is loyal, authentic, and supportive.

Patrick is so grateful to be part of the Liveris Academy and will make the most of the opportunities presented to him.
